But ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) still has to prove itself.
Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) uses the ocean's thermal gradient to drive a heat engine.
Other sea-powered methods being considered by the Mauritians include ocean thermal energy conversion, a relatively unproven technology that uses differences in temperature between water near the surface and deeper water.
In addition, Cuban authorities say they've completed a project to develop ocean thermal energy conversion plants, taking advantage of year-round ocean temperatures of 28-30 degrees C.
These tsunami waves would have had little or no effect on floating offshore ocean wind energy farms (unless they were particularly close to shore), nor would they affect ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) power plants, or any other deep-sea energy solutions, because the tsunami waves are harmless in deep water.
